Looks like I jumped to a conclusion on the dumpdb script.  The mailman/bin directory on the old server does not contain a dumpdb script however, I just realized that it may be due to the fact that someone may have deleted it and not that there was no such script for Mailman 1.0.  Will a dumpdb script from a newer version of Mailman work on the old 1.0 version?
